Environmentalism at Work

Wist Business Supplies & Equipment helps to protect the environment and create a sustainable facility.


To achieve fuel economy, Wist uses low-emission diesel engines in all delivery trucks. All diesel fleet equipment are equipped to California Certified Clean Idle standard.

We also:

  • Follow delivery procedures and use route optimization software designed to maximize distribution while reducing overall fuel consumption.
  • Support programs designed to encourage our customers to combine orders, reducing the number of deliveries.
  • Use recycled and biodegradable packaging materials whenever possible.


Wist takes the hassle out of recycling. Our drivers pick up all empty toner and inkjet cartridges and corrugated cardboard from customers, without a return authorization, for recycling.

Our numbers add up. Last year, we recycled:

  • 85,000-lbs of cardboard
  • 8,000-lbs of paper

  • 46,000-lbs of catalogs
